Snipes Appeal -- Let Me Out to Fight in Supreme Court

12/17/2010 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Wesley Snipes' attorneys just filed a new appeal -- asking the court to let him out of prison while he attempts to take his tax evasion fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

According to the documents -- filed today in Florida -- Snipes wants the U.S. Court of Appeals to overturn a decision that denied him bail last week ... right before he entered Federal Prison.

Snipes' lawyers want SUPCO to determine if Wesley should get a new trial because of alleged juror bias during his tax evasion case.

Ummm... The Supreme Court is pretty busy with important cases, so don't get your hopes up Wesley. In fact they won't even think about considering it unless you can demonstrate an unresolved constitutional issue that hasn't come before the courts before.

@#3 I agree completely.

Besides, people, how could HE have been trying to defraud the guv'ment when he had an ACCOUNTANT and a FINANCIAL ADVISER?!?!

Lots of people pwe back taxes, and are attempting to pay them off... Snipes tried to fight the IRS,and even hired an attorney to state he didnt beleive in paying taxes, and this is the big difference. You can count on two things in this life and that is death and taxes, and both are equivalent.

Pay your f'n taxes and don't try to cheat the Man because he will catch on. People with money and/or fame that try to get away with crap like this drive me insane. Why should the middle and lower working class have to pay SO much and the rich write everything off. This pile of dung wouldn't even play the rich folks game and do that he felt he was entitled to keep his earning and he choose what to pay the IRS. It doesn't work like that and he needs to sit in jail.
